School Spirit (Into the Dark Review)

August is here and going quickly which only means one thing when you are a kid… school is coming. In the 11th episode in the Into the Dark series on Hulu appropriately titled School Spirit, a few teenagers are in for a deadly treat with their first detention of the school year. 

In high school, there are the typical cliche labels of all individuals. In this Breakfast Club meets Scream vibe, we have our miss perfect star pupil Erica (Annie Q. — Alex Strangelove, The Leftovers). This Ivy League student is among a treat to the other regular delinquents in detention. 

Just like at any school, there is a myth that an old teacher who died from a prank gone horribly wrong , comes back every year and preys on the students, more recently 2 students are actually missing. 

With the recent events of the two missing students, you have the typical alcoholic principal “showing concern” while he tries his best to lock the delinquents in a room as they do their cleaning. The introductions of the goody two shoe students to the partiers who “have nothing going for them” worked out perfectly in the beginning then it went downhill right to their fate. 

A rotting corpse is responsible for each missing teen, going from rebelling with alcohol and weed to wanting to be the best they can be, they are picked off one by one.

For me it has the perfect amount of cheesy teen drama and rebellion with a I Know What You Did Last Summer vibe. You don’t know what to make of it and it definitely holds your attention while you piece together on who the killer may be. 

If you are looking to find out the do’s and don’ts of what not to do in school then this movie is for you. Check out the trailer below and also catch up with the series on Hulu.
